Godly Legacy and a Nation

King David gathered, created and formed an inheritance for his son so that son could build a house for God (1Chron.22:5). David wanted to be assured that his son would have an encounter with the God he had an encounter with. David not only loved his son and wanted to be assured that he would have a relationship with God but David also loved what God loved: the nation of Israel. He wanted to be assured that the presence of God would be in the midst of Israel. There was a nation at stake and David facilitated its preservation. In preserving his family, in consciously working on leaving a godly legacy, David preserved a nation.
